    Default Irish singer wearing the poppy on X-factor

    Sad to see the Irish contestants wearing the emblem of war and colonialism this evening. If its an attempt to fit in and not antagonise possible voters its a very sad day, if ITV or X-factor insisted on it then that surely borders on discrimination.

    Why? It commemorates tens of thousands of Irish men who died too in World War I.

    couldn't agree more. It's a symbol of remembrance for the dead

    www.build a bridge and get over it .com

    you sit there watching the likes of X Factor a programme made in the very nation

    that you condemn with the "emblem of war and ..." bit;

    Irony or ignorance at its best-

    you remind me of that idiot outside Croke Park in the Celtic soccer jersey

    carrying the sign saying - "no foreign games"

    In reality if thats all you have to worry about

    let me suggest that you go out- find the biggest woman you can find / afford

    and get a shag.

    It's a symbol of the soldiers who lost their life during WWI. God love all of them who lost their lives.

    The Poppy glorifies British genocide around the world, and helps to pay for the genocides of the present. Anyone who wears it is píssing on the graves of hundreds of millions of the victims of British murder and theft.

    Ah the annual P.ie X-factor poppy thread. I saw a bit of it tonight and when Dermot O'Leary walked out (Son of Ireland, wears the green jersey) I thought to myself, which P.ie poster will start 2010's thread... congrats Silver Spurs, you win the title of most predictable thread of the week
    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.
